    Comfortable, plays great, fantastic electronics

    Yamaha guitars are great value for the money. I played at least half a dozen acoustics under $500 before settling on this, which was the one I was expecting to like the most. The body shape is very comfortable but still decently loud, and the neck has great action after a quick setup, especially for someone used to playing Strats and Teles. The electronics are easily the best I've heard in this price range - clearly better than the Ovation and Seagull guitars I've recorded with in the past. The EQ controls make it easy to get a warm and natural tone going into my interface. In a mix it's hard to tell DI from a condenser.

    The unplugged sound is the only shortcoming. It sounds perfectly fine, but lacks a bit of depth and articulation compared to nicer models. Still, for $ you can do a lot worse.

    Nice guitar for price

    This great guitar is exactly as billed. Great folk sized body ,lovely sweet tones and high range and mid range. I prefer medium-light weight strings by Martin, but light weight strings work well. My only problem is the battery connection piece. It fits poorly and many times looses contact which is trouble some when playing with friends. I had to Jerry- Rig the bracket to make reliably functional.. But again an entry level guitar is going to have some minor issues !,
    For $, good buy
